The illusion Theater will travel to Blue Earth on Monday, February 6, 2017 to present THURGOOD. This powerful play follows Thurgood Marshall’s life from a childhood in the back alleys of Baltimore to the position of Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States. Along the way, this larger than life figure became one of the key architects of the American Civil Rights movement that included the landmark Brown v. Board of Education and key voting rights cases. Tracking a journey of epic proportions, THURGOOD is an eye-opening, humorous, and uplifting portrait of a true American hero.
This performance will take place at 7 pm at the Blue Earth Area High School’s Performing Arts Center. General Admission tickets are $5. Students and those over 65 years of age are free.
